Dreams of an Insomniac Independent Film

Dreams of an Insomniac Independent Film

We are raising money for our Film, Dreams of an Insomniac via Kickstarter, a platform that facilitates fundraising for artist, and we need your help. Dreams of an insomniac is a single film that will be released in two ways.

Dreams of an Insomniac is a compilation of 6 short stories that overlap through the thoughts, actions, and eyes of the main character. The first script of the six, City of Lost Dreams, was written over two years ago.

It is that script, City of Lost Dreams, which will be released separately from the rest. Since the City of Lost Dreams story is so strong, it demands to be heard in its own right. It is slated to be between 15 and 20 minutes and deals with a woman who is the victim of Murphy’s Law. It will premier early next year.

The teaser for City of Lost Dreams is below:

We have also prepared a vignette called Free, which focuses on a main character, Jane, from both City of Lost Dreams and the rest of Dreams of an Insomniac.

The other 5 shorts will then be edited with the first movie to deliver the entire Dreams of an Insomniac story, which will premier late next year. The scripts were written in such a way that they could be viewed separately, almost like Sin-City, but when you watch them together there is a story that joins them all seamlessly.

Dreams of an Insomniac is about Dante rediscovering things about his past that haunt him and they are beginning to impact his present and future. His nightmares cause him such restlessness that he can no longer sleep. As a result he dreams wide awake and some of his nightmares have merged into his day to day life. He must decode it all in order to move forward or forever be trapped in his dreams.

In addition to being a mix of psychological drama and thriller, it is the overreaching story arcs of the dreams that will make Dreams of an Insomniac unique.

How We Will Do It:
Everything is falling into place; we just need your funding to assist. We have already scouted for locations and have put the final touches on most of the scripts. We will continue to polish the scripts and we'll prepare the shot list and storyboards as we get closer to our first shoot. Auditions for the remaining parts will take place before the end of September and after that it’s just a boat load of filming. The filming will take place in 6 sessions of 3 days each. This will allow us to film while being mindful of our independent actors' need to return to work. After filming we will edit and master our audio while we get our film festival applications ready. After that we will sit back and hope everyone enjoys our hard work when they see it on the screen.

With your help, City of Lost Dreams, the short, is guaranteed to be released before next summer. The entire film will be released by the end of next year.

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

    Barry, Filmmaker
  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
